It’s very short, and it comes from a novel I started writing about 10 years ago. As with so many first novels, I got about 15,000 words in and shelved it.*
Not finishing was a good call, not least because a very famous writer came out with a very similar idea a few years later. But there are still some nice moments there. I think this snippet, published by Eggplant Literary Productions (hence the photo), captures one of them. If you have anything at all to say about the story, I’d really appreciate a comment left on the site itself.
*I am in the process of turning the failed novel into a short story/novella–reducing the characters and streamlining the plot. Maybe I’ll even finish it one of these days.
